President Trump has sent the message to the rest of Washington that he is not pushing for a war with Iran. This is the best news coming from the man in weeks and weeks, but I don’t know whether this thought will hold. He has that consistency problem. You know, one day it’s this and […]Read More Iran and War? Not Yet
What a scary thought. Not for Iran, which I suspect will go on being Iran. But for us. Let’s travel in time back to George Bush’s War against Saddam Hussein. Remember Weapons of Mass Destruction?

Hundreds and hundreds of former prosecutors and law enforcers disagreed, saying there is enough evidence to charge […]Read More The Larger World of Justice Calls Barr to Task
